Gilmore Girls Risotto Recipe
In the first season of Gilmore Girls, Sookie's restaurant is visited by food critic Lucien Mills. He gave her cooking a great review but called her risotto merely 'fine'. Sookie is upset by this; she claims her risotto is a magic risotto which she made for her mother on her deathbed, and which helped her mother live three more years. So, she whips some more up and arrives at his house, demanding he try it. Here's our take on Sookie's magic risotto, a recipe for a creamy wild mushroom risotto.
